Developing Your Buddhist Meditation Practice
Part of the Your Meditation Practice Series
Do you understand the benefits of meditation but are not sure how best to develop a consistent, meaningful daily practice?
Buddhist teachings help us to understand and gradually transform our mind from an uncontrolled state to a state that can remain peaceful in any situation. With such a calm and balanced mind, we can think more clearly and benefit others. However, to make this transformation, we need to take the teachings deep into our heart. Developing a daily meditation practice will help us do that.
This half day course will offer practical instructions for how to create a meaningful, sustainable daily Buddhist meditation practice. How wonderful!
This course will have 3 sessions. Session 1 is an hour and includes a mediation. Sessions 2 and 3 are each about 45 minutes. Session 2 will focus on Prayers for Meditation as a guide to the Preliminary Practices. Session 3 will include the actual Prayers for Meditation and a lam rim meditation. All sessions will be available from 8am on Wed, March 24th through 8 pm on Sat, March 27th.
Session 1 – Going Deeper into the Meditation Process
Session 2 – The Preliminary Practices and the Meditations of the Path
Session 3 – A Meditation Session using Prayers for Meditation.
No Experience Necessary.
Registration will remain open until noon on Saturday, March 27 as there will still be time to enjoy all 3 sessions.
